Black Tea has less than half the amount of caffeine per cup than in a similar-sized cup of coffee. More about caffeine.
Steeping black tea is easy. Simply heat fresh, filtered water to a rolling boil. Then pour water over tea and steep for 3-5 minutes if using a tea bag or full-leaf.

Went From 'Eh' To One of My Favs!
When I had my first sip of my first cup of this tea, I was quite disappointed. It wasn't as sweet as I was expecting (In fact, I didn't really think that it was sweet at all) and I didn't really care for the flavor. But I am now about a quarter of the way through my tin, and it has quickly become one of my favorites. This tea does not taste sweet in the front of your mouth, at the beginning of the sip. The sweetness comes a second later, towards the back of your mouth and after you swallow. I think that if you're expecting that, you will be less disappointed in the sweetness with that first sip. The flavor is very different. And with time and exposure, has really grown on me. It tastes floral and exotic and is really, very lovely. For me, the timing of the sweetness (a second after you sip) combined with the exotic flavor makes this a really complex tea that very stimulating to drink.
Not So Sweet as Expected
I was a bit disappointed with this tea. It has a weird taste and is not as sweet as I anticipated. I might mix it up with other teas for ice tea just to use it up. Sorry guys.
I love traditional southern sweet tea but can't handle the high fructose content and the calories! This tea tastes just as good without the additives and calories.If you have a Keurig K-cup machine, use a glass or cup; insert the tea bag(s) and hit the hot water button!
This tea is just so good. It has a nice little sweetness to it without being overpowered by it. It is delicious hot or cold.
A Northerners Answer to Southern Sweet Tea
I developed somewhat of a taste for sweet tea while working in North Carolina (where that is really all the tea you can get!!). However, the NC version was too sweet, often bitter, and kept me up all night. And then there were the calories. I thought I would try this and was super pleased - no bitterness, just the right sweetness, normal caffeine content. I became addicted immediately and without an iota of guilt! It is great cold - I keep a pitcher in the refrigerator all summer, and I drink it hot year round. I highly recommend it and all of its companions - the Ginger Peach is equally good.
